Culottes describes a split or divided skirt or any garment which "hangs like a skirt, but is actually pants. In place of the term "culottes," the term skort (skirt and shorts) is more widely used in some areas. While some garments sold as culottes resemble short trousers, to truly be a skort it needs to look like a skirt.
Thus, they differ from trousers or shorts by being much fuller at the bottom than at the waist. A skort is shorts that have a front covering to resemble a skirt or short pant legs with a same length or longer skirt sewn over the top.
Culottes have not been seen on the style scene for quite some time, and with all the ways you can style the comfortable, breezy trend, we wonder why they ever left us. The cropped, wide-legged pant is the perfect alternative to a midi skirt. Seen on the Spring/Summer 2014 runways, the culotte is making a huge comeback.
Ladylike and laid-back, culotte pants, when paired with classic elements like a wrapped blouse, trench coat and pumps, look effortlessly chic. -- the perfect blend of sophistication and comfort. When paired with neutral tops or minimal layers, Relaxed yet crisp, when white culottes are paired with clean-lined tops.
You can wear them high-waisted and to tuck in your top to them to add length to your body and to appear taller. With the width of the legs and the way they do cut off the legs a bit, you will be better finding a high-waist pair that speaks to you.
You can also wear a crop top with them as well, but wear a fitted one for balance or you can appear sloppy.
